German black/thrash metal veterans OUTRAGE have recently started recording their next album “The Elemental War” in InnerEar studio, Pforzheim. The album will be released in 2013 which will be the 30th anniversary of the band.
OUTRAGE were formed in 1983 and belonged to the first wave of black metal, however they have been under the radar for many years, remaining one of the most obscure bands in this genre, in spite of releasing 4 demos in the ’80s and putting out 6 CDs after the reunion in 2004. In 2011 they signed with Metal on Metal Records which released their 7th full-length “Go to Hell” in November the same year. “Go to Hell” consists of re-recorded versions of their early demos songs and can be listened in its entirety from Bandcamp.
According to the band’s founder and guitarist, Udo “The Bringer of Doom”, the new songs are in the same style as those he wrote in the ’80s, but “The Elemental War” album will be more raw sounding than “Go to Hell”.
